Moisture manager lawn product saves home from fire
A local veterinarian’s home was apparently saved from the Weeki Wachee brush fire in Ocala, FL April 30 which destroyed 70 acres of property because he had treated his lawn with a product that keeps the grass from drying out.
Dr. Mike Brannan’s home sits in the midst of over 12 acres of woods with his house on a hilltop just east of Tooke Lake and US Highway 19 near Weeki Wachee. His home is divided from the woods by a large lawn which he had treated with a product called Moisture Manager (a private label of the Hydretain http://ecologel.com/product_map technology), which helps protect plants from drying out in between periods of rainfall or irrigation. The woods were totally scorched but the fire stopped where the woods and grass meet.
